Lost Co-Creator Damon Lindelof Declares 'Cynics Win' After Deleting Aurora Tribute Tweet

This is one of those days where something terrible has happened and we're left to digest both the tragedy itself and the Internet's own messy response to the tragedy, a response that is equal parts informative, vitriolic, sympathetic, self-absorbed, and at times utterly unnecessary. Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof found out how hard it is to navigate such choppy waters when he sent out this tweet earlier today:

Get to Know Courtney Stodden, Child Bride of That 51-Year-Old Guy From Lost

Seth Abramovitch · 06/23/11 12:36AM

Love is a weird thing: You never quite know when and where cupid's arrow might strike. Take, for example, the recent nuptials of Doug Hutchison, a 51-year-old actor best known for a recurring role on Lost, to (allegedly) 16-year-old Courtney Stodden.

If Lost Ultimately Didn't Work, How Can The Event?

Richard Lawson · 09/20/10 03:01PM

Tonight is the premiere of The Event, NBC's latest stab at a big, loud, rumbling mystery machine, a hybrid of Lost's tantalizing obfuscation and 24's globe-trotting government intrigue. It's not a miniseries, it's a full series-series. So can it work?
